A great news for Firefox users: Mozilla developers are planning to bring Firefox Home to Blackberry and Symbian platforms. Firefox Home is a free cloud-based tool for syncing Firefox’s history, bookmarks and tabs, currently available for iPhone.
Mozilla says, “In addition to adding new features, another big focus is to bring Firefox Home to other phones where users don’t have the Firefox browser. We are working to bring Firefox Home to both Blackberry and Symbian platforms in the coming months. We want to offer people access to their Firefox data no matter where they are, and these two platforms make up around 60% of the worldwide smartphone market combined. We’ve also heard interest for an iPad version of Firefox Home and will investigate this option further.”
Firefox Home provides access to user’s Firefox data synced through Firefox Sync, a service available for desktop browser and proposed to be integrated natively in Firefox 4.
Firefox For iPhone?
Mozilla also cleared that it is not planning for iPhone version of Firefox. Firefox for Mobile is available for Nokia’s Maemo platform, and Mozilla is currently focused only on Firefox Home for iPhone.
